Law & Literature Reunion Book Club DinnerBook Cover

Selected Reading: Rules of Civility by Amor Towles
Set in New York City in 1938, Rules of Civility tells the story of a watershed year in the life of an uncompromising twenty-five-year-old named Katey Kontent. Armed with little more than a formidable intellect, a bracing wit, and her own brand of cool nerve, Katey embarks on a journey from a Wall Street secretarial pool through the upper echelons of New York society in search of a brighter future.” (Amor Towles web site).

About the Book Club: 
For several years, Steve Subrin has been teaching a course called The Legal Imagination or Law and Literature: Life as a Lawyer, in which students and he read literature as a point of departure for conversations about how one will choose to live his or her life as a lawyer. At the request of many alumni/ae, Steve and graduates will lead a discussion as part of reunion. Participants should select a passage from the book that is personally meaningful and write a paragraph about why they chose it.  If you wish to join the group for this dinner and book discussion, please email or call Mielle Marquis promptly at m.marquis@neu.edu. Space is limited!
